Cozy, mellow place for Saturday lunch in Tustin?

mangetoutoc | Jan 21, 2008 07:34 PM

Hiya all,
My best friend & I are going out for a rare "no-kids-no-hubbies" lunch next Saturday and I'm at a loss. I would like to meet up closer to her place on Red Hill in Tustin but the problem is that I rarely get out to that area and have no idea where would be a good place to go. We'd like a place where we could get a glass or three of wine or perhaps some cocktails, not pay through the nose, and be able to have a long, relaxed lunch without feeling rushed. Ideally, we'd love a cozy place with a somewhat mellow atmosphere where we can hang out for a while, get some food, have a few drinks, and chat for a while.

A few more details ... she's on a diet, so heavy stuff and BBQ is out (damn!) and, despite being Japanese, is not a fan of sushi (double DAMN!). I will eat pretty much anything, so long as it's fresh and well-prepared and not served in a corporate vortex. It can be from family-run hole-in-the-wall to a funky joint ... whatever's groovy.

Thanks for your help!!!
